Path to Greatness special to show some of the best stories from the past year
The Path to Greatness special shows some of the best stories from the past year, highlighting young athletes overcoming obstacles on and off the field, connecting with their future goals. Plus, we give updates on what some of these athletes are doing now, whether that’s moving on to college or traveling all over the world!
These young athletes are examples of the best inspiration and motivation mid-Michigan has to offer. From the state champion Alma swimmer Evelyn VanDeMark who overcame cancer to compete in the state meet this year, to Saginaw High's Algevon Eichelberger returning home to spend time with his grandfather, to Lapeer track and karate standout Allison Johnson who overcame hip dysplasia and is now at the University of Michigan, to Bendle kicker/powerlifter Barak Hernandez, who embraced his individuality through his passion for animals, we bring you some of the best stories of the year!
